Rape Aggression Defence Program

The Rape Aggression Defence (RAD) System is a program of realistic self-defence tactics and techniques for women. The RAD System is a comprehensive, women-only course that begins with awareness, prevention, risk reduction and risk avoidance, while progressing on to the basics of hands-on defence training. The course is taught over four 3-hour sessions. In order to complete the course, you must commit to attending all four sessions. RAD is not a martial arts program and is available to all female students, faculty and staff at Centennial College.
